Another Reason To Diet

After a long engagement (they planned it that way!), it looks like my younger sister is going to walk down the aisle with her geek-in-shining-armor around Christmas. This means a couple of things for Wendy:
  • Pay off credit card debt so I can buy her a fabulous gift
  • Pay off credit card debt so I can buy plane tickets
  • Pay off credit card debt so I can buy a new dress
  • Good God I need to get serious about exercising
Thankfully we bought The Boyfriend two new suits this weekend for work - so he's covered. Literally.

In reading news - shoot me. Seriously, death would be less painful. I finished Defiant by Bobbi Smith this afternoon. Frankly, it's too painful to rehash here. Maybe I'll just be lazy and post a link to my TRR review when it goes up. For those who can't wait, here's the quick and dirty version:
  • Poorly written (all tell, no show and tons of head-hopping)
  • A heroine who goes from innocent, giggly girl to wanton flirt in the blink of an eye
  • A mystery angle that any idiot can solve by page 45
  • Purple prose in the extreme. The word "hungrily" was used so much I began to suspect the heroine and hero of cannibalism
Like I said painful. Next up, time for me to stop avoiding Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward. I'm still scared....

I think you need to read something for yourself before you start swearing off books for good!!!!

Oh, I think Lover Eternal will cleanse your palette nicely! It's very good, at least I thought so. But then again, to each his own ;).

Wendy - could you email me on please? Thanks.

Wendy, just a few things:


2. At least I'm not making you wear a bridesmaids dress! :)

3. You think you have to exercise?!

Sheri :) Oh, and Ozan is not a geek in shining armor...his armor wouldn't be clean and it would be wrinkly from being on the floor. :)
